One of Japan's most luxurious trains is the Kintetsu Ise Shima Liner which runs from Nagoya and Osaka Namba stations to Kashikojima on the Ise Shima Peninsula in Mie Prefecture.
The train has a European-style "saloon" carriage, a "deluxe" carriage and a trolley service for refreshments.
The train usually stops in Tsu, Uji Yamada, Toba and Kashikojima from Nagoya Station.
Journey time from Namba Station in Osaka to Toba is around 2 hours. From Nagoya the time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. A special "weekday four" ticket cuts the price to 2,980 yen per adult from Osaka or 2,500 yen from Nagoya if you travel as a group of four people.
